Ripley Q and (Contact Us Please)

6 posts in this topic

For those of us Rookies to CRipley that have questions can some of you shine some light on us? I will start;

If I shoot a buck at Ripley, can I still shoot a buck outside of Ripley? Is it a seperate tag? thanks!

I know you have to take out your stand every night but how about a trail cam?

Cell service is good.

As for the tag, I called a few years ago and you use your regular tag. So you can shoot only 1 buck either there or elsewhere.

That is correct. You use your regular archery license in there. Cell phone service is OK in camp, but with AT&T it's a little spotty on the north end. Trail cameras might not be allowed since you cannot leave things inside the installation.

Use your regular buck tag. However you can use bonus permits and take a doe if you want. I believe they open this up a couple years ago. The fields on the south side are great for does. Every year driving in to be close to the front of the line for the 2nd day there were many does in the fields. I did see a drop tine buck run across Normandy Rd into the no hunting area. Went about 30yds in and just started browsing like he knew he couldn't be touched. Start dreamin' boys!!!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
